    Sorry bout that,


    1, In another thread I said that the Catholics do not believe in evolution.
    2. Seems the Pope just came out today and agreed with me.
    3, Any questions?
    4. LINK:Pope: Humanity isn't random product of evolution - Yahoo! News


    VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI marked the holiest night of the year for Christians by stressing that humanity isn't a random product of evolution.

    Benedict emphasized the Biblical account of creation in his Easter Vigil homily Saturday, saying it was wrong to think at some point "in some tiny corner of the cosmos there evolved randomly some species of living being capable of reasoning and of trying to find rationality within creation, or to bring rationality into it."

    "If man were merely a random product of evolution in some place on the margins of the universe, then his life would make no sense or might even be a chance of nature," he said. "But no, reason is there at the beginning: creative, divine reason."

    Church teaching holds that Roman Catholicism and evolutionary theory are not necessarily at odds: A Christian can, for example, accept the theory of evolution to help explain developments, but is taught to believe that God, not random chance, is the origin of the world. The Vatican, however, warns against creationism, or the overly literal interpretation of the Bibilical account of creation.

    Benedict's voice was hoarse and he coughed several times during the three-hour service, which ended after midnight. It was the second late night in a row for the 84-year-old pontiff following his participation in the Good Friday Way of the Cross procession at Rome's Colosseum, which commemorates Jesus' death.

    On Sunday, he celebrates Easter Mass in St. Peter's Square and gives his traditional Easter greetings in dozens of languages — his last major celebration before next week's beatification of Pope John Paul II.

    The Easter Vigil is the most important liturgy on the church's calendar, when the faithful mark the passage from Christ's death to his resurrection on Easter Sunday. It is rich with symbols: fire and light signifying Jesus' resurrection, and the water used to baptize people into the faith."

    Catholics have believed in evolution for years. Even the two previous Popes.

    It's American Christians that believe in "magical creation" and "irreducible complexity".

    Despite all evidence to the contrary, they even believe conservative economic policies work. Those people are brainwashed.

    Sorry bout that,







    1. In my other thread about this topic, I said that The Catholics are just playing along with evolutionists in order to win some to Jesus Christ.
    2. You've been played, basically.
    3. We have just been telling you its okay, its okay, don't hurt yourselves.
    4. When in fact we don't actually believe a word of it.
    5. God spoke, then wham, everything was.
    6. Do try and keep up.
    7. Each person will have to answer for his sins, be it a Priest or a Terrorist.

    Sorry bout that,







    1. I see how a person racks up over 26 thousands posts, they never really have an original thought, they just shuffle into a thread with a blank stair, like a cat who ate too much, and criticize the only person able to think and post with reason and justice, great topics and great thoughts, as myself.
    2. From the News Agency, *CWN*, that is all.:lol:

    1. So you say, are you sure about what anyone truly believes?
    2. Do you know what you believe, and can you express it here?
    3. Thought not.

    Us and the talking snakes.

    Whatever happened to them anyway?
